Patent busters
Wouldn't it be great if there were a "patent busters" public interest group to challenge these undeserved patents for which prior art clearly exists? I still get a little pissed off when I think about the fact that I can't make commercial use of 40 and 50 year-old circuits that are rightfully in the public domain because opportunists like R. Smith and Pittman have managed to get patents on them.
